Issue

There is no equivalent to tabadmin administrator in the first release of Tableau Server for Linux.

Environment

Tableau Server for Linux 10.5

Resolution

Use the REST API or Tableau Server interface to grant a user administrator privileges.

In the event there are no current Admin users, rendering the REST API unavailable for use, contact Tableau Technical Support for assistance.

Cause

This functionality was not migrated to Tableau Services Manager, because it is included in the Tableau Server REST API.
